A Tensed Piece of Furniture…..

Like this stool designed by Max Frommeld, based on the principle of rigidness through tension. The designer was inspired by a traditional bow saw for the structure, which is an exploitation of the material’s natural attributes. The stool is held rigid by tension in the twisted rope. No tools are required for assembly but an object of the owner’s choice is required to maintain the tension, allowing a degree of personalization and fun. Tough I’m not totally convinced about the overall aesthetic (maybe its a bit kitschy and could be used in specific thematic settings), I do like the concept, which offers lots of possibilities…..Nice.
